A tweet sent out by the @WrestleVotes account seems to be strongly implying that someone from NXT will be getting called up tonight.
WrestleVotes’ tweet does not say who will be moving up tonight but some names that have gotten tryouts in recent weeks would be some of the strong candidates to appear tonight. The names that got tryouts in recent weeks include Karrion Kross, Scarlett, Tegan Nox, Bronson Reed and Shotzi Blackheart.
Kross is still the NXT Champion and so that seemingly rules him and Scarlett out. Nox made her return to NXT this week so that makes Reed and Blackheart the most likely candidates out of the names listed above. I would not be shocked if Blackheart is announced as a surprise replacement for Bayley or the “I Quit” match at Money In The Bank since the rest of the SmackDowm women’s roster will be involved in the women’s Money In The Bank match.
As noted earlier, Bayley is out for nine months after getting injured while training for her Money In The Bank match with Bianca Belair and WWE will make an announcement tonight on her replacement.
UPDATE: PWInsider is reporting that Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart will face SmackDown Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina on tonight’s show so the NXT tease may have nothing to do with Bayley’s replacement.
